Low Carb Blueberry Almond Yogurt Recipe I Gut Friendly I Kid Approved

As one of the most commonly consumed snacks amongst healthy eaters, yogurt continues to rise in popularity. Yogurt sales in the U.S grew from $5.6 billion in 2011 to $7.6 billion in 2021 so far. Part of the reason for the rapid increase in yogurt sales is that companies have rolled out clever marketing campaigns touting yogurt as a gut healing, probiotic rich food.

While its true that high quality yogurt can do wonders for your gut health, many of the leading companies fail to live up to their health claims. When purchasing yogurt, its always best to buy plain (unsweetened), organic, grass-fed yogurt made with LIVE probiotics. 

If the yogurt you're buying is sweetened with sugar and is not formulated with LIVE probiotics, it is likely doing more damage to your gut than healing. However, if you're eating yogurt that follows the guidelines listed above, the yogurt is likely to have higher probiotic potency than many expensive probiotic supplements that you find in store shelves.

The yogurt recipe outlined below uses simple ingredients that your whole family will enjoy Some of the ingredients include:



- loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that fight inflammation.

- research shows that blueberry juice may reduce cancer risk

- blueberry intake is associated with a reduction in belly fat



- Greek yogurt is high in protein, keeping you full for a long period of time.

- Yogurt contains probiotics: aiding in digestion and potentially boosting your immune system 

- Greek Yogurt naturally contains iodine, which aids metabolism function



- high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat

- a good source of magnesium (over 80% of the U.S population is deficient in magnesium)

- high in vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that also protects your skin's collagen.
